Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0842331964, Paperback)

"I have sent for you," said Sarah, "because I want you to tell me how to die." Cora Parkhurst is simply too busy with other things to get to know the girls in the Sunday school class or to spend much time preparing her lessons.

Robert Hammond, on the other hand, is absolutely dedicated to the boys in his class, addressing their concerns in his Sunday sessions and helping them battle their temptations all week long. Concerned for Cora and her class, he invites her to a teachers' meeting, hoping to spark her enthusiasm for teaching. But what begins innocently enough gets complicated when Cora's fiancé becomes jealous.

In the midst of it all, gravely ill Sarah calls for her Sunday school teacher. What she asks of Cora will change Cora's life--and everyone else's as well.

Heartwarming stories of faith and love by Grace Livingston Hill's aunt--Isabella Alden. Each book is similar in style and tone to Hill's and is set in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
